back to IE 6.0

If I remove IE 7 from programs will it revert back to IE 6? I just had Windows reinstalled by someone and not sure if that would work?

If..

If the computer has had windows reinstalled, and by default, came with ie7, it will not revert back to IE6 when uninstalled, but you can download ie6 from here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_internet_explorer/317/

Whether or not Windows will accept it, I don't know. If you must it is always possible to reinstall IE7 again or get Firefox with an IE6 theme if the look of IE6 is what you want.

back to IE 6.0

Well I saved IE 6.0 to floppy so now if I remove 7.0 will I be able to install the 6.0 from the floppy? I just want to be sure I can get back online if I remove 7.0 first.

Will do some googling

As it is almost 1am here in Australia I will post later but I don't think ie6 will actually fit on a floppy and is likely you do not have a copy of ie6. You will have to download.
